car repairs


Question by  Manoranjitham (10)

Can you help me troubleshoot a 1994 Ford Ranger that is running rough?

My truck is giving me a hard time and I have no idea where to begin.

Rough running is most likely caused from your spark or ignition. Change all your spark plugs, replace your fuel filter, and change your wires. This will probly fix it.

You want to start with replacing the basics such as the spark plugs, plug wires, air filter, fuel filter, and oil change with oil filter. If you get no improvement then it's time to check more things like the fuel pump, ignition, elecrical components (PCM, ECM, etc.), and things of that sort. Still no improvement, take it to a shop.

Check these things, in this order: gas quality, fuel filter, air filter, idle setting, spark plugs, timing, fuel injectors, relative compression in cylinders, valves, rings, timing chain. Good luck.
